What's there looks rather good. With some boilerplate and a screenshot, it's 
OK. We're not supposed to make huge changes, so let's not show those. I think 
we should now be rather silently fixing bugs. The same goes for further -RC 

Jos, can you send me the current version?

I'll try to whip something up later today.

We will be doing both at the same time, tomorrow (Tuesday). I'd do both in 
relative modesty, not too much havoc, probably not even lots of screenshots.

This paves the way for the final release, some silence before we get 
everything out is in order, I think. We shouldn't swamp the press right now, 
but deliver information about those finals well in time so everything is 
prepared when we really release dot-0h.
